The Carter Family - from No Secrets - 1972

A                      Em7
The Carter family lived next door
A               Em7
For almost 14 years
A                      Em7
With Gwen and I inseperatable
A                      Em7
From rag dolls through brassieres

D                    G7
Then Gwen began to bore me
           Cmaj7           Am7
With her giggles and her fears
Dm7                         Fmaj7
The day the Carters moved away
G7                 Cmaj7                  
I had to fake my tears
Bm        C       G
Oh   oh oh oh oh oh

G     Eb                 Bb
I told new friends Gwen Carter 
A7                   D
Had become a silly pest
G                    D
And then I found I missed her
C      Cmaj7               G
More than I'd ever have guessed

A                      Em7
Grandma used to nag at me
A                      Em7
To straighten up my spine
A                      Em7
To act respectful and read good books
A                      Em7
To take care of what was mine

D                    G7
I hated being criticized
  Cmaj7           Am7
And asking her permission
Dm7                         Fmaj7
So what if her advise was wise
G7                 Cmaj7 
It always hurt to listen
Bm        C       G
Oh   oh oh oh oh oh

G     Eb                 Bb
I didn't cry when Granny died
A7                   D
She made me so depressed
G                    D
And then I found I missed her
C      Cmaj7               G
More than I'd ever have guessed

A                      Em7
You used to make me moan in bed
A                      Em7
But that can't be enough
A                      Em7
My friends complained your jokes were crude
A                      Em7
Your manners were too rough

D                    G7
Don't know just what I wanted
  Cmaj7           Am7
But I know I wanted more
Dm7                    Fmaj7
Someone smooth, presentable
G7                 Cmaj7 
To blend with my decor
Bm        C       G
Oh   oh oh oh oh oh

A                      Em7
And now at night I think of how 
A                      Em7
You grinned when you undressed
A                Em7
And I find I miss you 
A                      Em7
More than I'd ever have guessed

G   A   Em7
